Rio Samaya Band a.k.a Pancho and Sal

Travel and Music, or travelling with music is what Pancho and Sal have done in the last years touring the world, as well as across Canada.

The whole experience and being full time musicians has not only improved their act, but has also added new tunes and so many things to talk about during the show, giving a real sensation of moving around without moving from your seat.. 

In constant change, they remain the same couple we have been seeing year after year  bringing a musical display that will include songs in Spanish, English and French, while playing a variety of instruments, like guitar, ukulele, charango, drum, accordion and flutes,

 well... a very interesting  show.

Pancho and Sal are based in Vancouver, Canada.

Born in San Jorge, Argentina, Pancho wrote poems from a young age. He moved to Europe to follow his dreams of playing the guitar and sharing his songs with the world. After touring in many countries, he became a troubadour style musician in the 80's in Sweden.

Playing with Gypsies in the South of France, he learned rumbas and flamenco. His compositions reflect these influences of flamenco and other folk rhythms. After years of exchange with other musicians, his original music has a wide diversity of styles.

Sal, who was born in England and raised in Canada, met Pancho in Cuzco, Peru, and from then on together as a family and musical duo have established a name for themselves. Sal compliments the music with her vocals, accordion, shakers, chachas, bombo and guitar.

They have a unique poetic style of translating simultaneously from Spanish to English.

You can enjoy Pancho and Sal at Folk Festivals, Community Centers, schools, restaurants, dance shows, concerts in the parks and numerous other events.
